Feedback and Testimonials
Within a day or so of attending the programme James's own self confidence grew tremendously. Having the "Gift of Dyslexia" meant that he had a rare ability. The programme concentrated on the positives and not the negatives which had been a focus at school.
After a difficult time at home and settling into a new school, the programme gave James the opportunity to focus on his own strengths. His love of art meant that using the clay was a delight and he is still working through the trigger words at home.
His concentration is steadily improving and he's getting quicker at reading. He still struggles with his writing and copying but his spelling is good. At the start of the course he really wanted to be able to tell the time and he's met this goal with "flying colours", increasing his belief in his own ability.
From a parent's perspective, I found Evelyn to be very supportive and knowledgeable. She struck up an instant rapport with James, which contributed to the success of the programme.
